    Default "I suppose..." and "I think..."

    Dear teachers,

    Is there any difference between "I suppose..." and "I think..."?

    thanks

    Sometime they are the same, but they can be different. 'I suppose' can be used to come to a conclusion:

    He's an hour late, so I suppose he won't be coming.

    Hi,
    Besides that, I think I suppose is a bit more formal.
    Cheers
